This is such bullshit. HarperCollins photoshopped the cigarette out of the Clement Hurd's hand in the "about the illustrator" picture in the 50th anniversary edition of the children's book Goodnight Moon, Worse still they bowdlerized an illustration by erasing an ashtray:
In the great green room, there is a telephone, and a red balloon, but no ashtray. "Goodnight Moon," the children's classic by Margaret Wise Brown, has gone smoke free.
In a newly revised edition of the book, which has lulled children to sleep for nearly 60 years, the publisher, HarperCollins, has digitally altered the photograph of Clement Hurd, the illustrator, to remove a cigarette from his hand. [NYT permalnk]
Don't smoke, kids. You might end up frozen in an incomprehensible pose for posterity.
